Why people stop at wanting “more”

People want “more” time. People want “more” community. I ran the Shamrock Run again this past weekend, and the temptation to say … Continue reading »

Recently, I found myself in the situation where I had a little extra money. Not a ton, you understand, but it felt significant to me.

How badly do you want it?

  Stop for a second and think about what you want most. It could be worldly or ethereal, it doesn’t matter. And to be clear, I mean the first idea that came to mind.
